The black tulip by Alexandre Dumas( Book )

28 editions published between 1899 and 1950 in 3 languages and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Cornelius von Baerle lives only to cultivate the elusive black tulip and win a magnificent prize for its creation. But when his powerful godfather is assassinated, the unwitting Cornelius becomes caught up in a deadly political intrigue. Falsely accused of high treason by a bitter rival, Cornelius is condemned to life in prison. His only comfort is Rosa, the jailer's beautiful daughter, who helps him concoct a plan to grow the black tulip in secret. As Robin Buss explains in his informative introduction, Dumas infuses his story with elements from the history of the Dutch Republic (including two brutal murders) and Holland's seventeenth-century "tulipmania" phenomenon

A love idyll in the setting of the Pyrenees, in the country of the Basques, that ancient and dwindling race which preserves so passionately its native pride, its old piety, and its disdain for things new and strange. The story of Ramuntcho's wooing of the golden-haired daughter of the enemy, and the misfortune that overtook it, is beautifully told, and the descriptions of the local scenery in the different seasons of the year, of the religious festivals, of the great contests in the national game, of the smuggling enterprises are marked by inimitable skill. --Amazon.com
